Paper Title:
Microstructure Analyses and FE Simulation of Automotive Product in the Hot Forging Process Using Aluminum Alloys
  Abstract

In automotive industries, components have replaced steel with aluminum alloys since the automotive parts that used aluminum alloys have the ability to improve the environment by lower weights and recycling of waste materials. In this study, experiments were carried out to investigate the characteristics of the developed aluminum alloys according to the forming temperature and speed. The microstructure of forged product in hot forging process was also investigate. The results revealed that the grain size of aluminum alloys was grown according to the forming temperature and speed. Three-dimensional finite element analyses were also carried out to investigate the forming load, deformed shape, and the stress distribution of the workpiece in the hot forging process. The deformed shape of the workpiece was consistent with the trend of experimental results.
